Women sperm

    It was believed by many ancients that women had sperm emissions at orgasm. ( Alcmaeon (about 500 B.C.) believed the sex of a child was determined by whose semen was most abundant. Democritus of Abdera (5th century B.C.), Aristotle (4th century B. C.), Galen (2nd century B.C.), and Lucretius (1st century B.C.), believed that during sexual intercourse the female expelled sperm from her ovaries that mixed in the womb with the male sperm to produce an embryo)

    Jewish writers and Rabbis naturally accepted this 'scientific' view. For instance :

    Lev 12:2

    When a woman tazria and bears a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days."

    The root of tazria is ZR, which means to sow (a seed). When a form of ZR means "to become pregnant, to be impregnated," the form tazara (the niphal or passive form) is always used . In Leviticus the causative (hiphil) is used.

    Hebrews 11: 11 By faith also Sarah herself did lay down seed, and she bare after the time of life, seeing she did judge Him faithful who did promise..

    The Greek here is 'katabole spermatos', was the technical term for a male seminal emission.

    Babylonian Talmud (Niddah 31a):

    Rabbi Isaac citing Rabbi Amni stated: If the woman emits her semen [hiphil of zr, like Lev 12:2 ] first, she bears a male child; if the man emits his semen first, she bears a female child; for it is said: "If a woman emits semen and bears a male child" (Lev 12:2 ). Our Rabbis taught: At first it used to be said that "if the woman emits her semen first, she will bear a male child, and if the man emits his semen first, she will bear a female," but the Sages did not explain the reason, until Rabbi Zadok came and explained it: "These are the sons of Leah whom she bore unto Jacob in Paddan-Aram, with his daughter Dinah" (Gen 46:15 ). Scripture thus ascribes the males to the females and the females to the males.

    I think if your wife has a higher sperm count than you do, that's grounds for divorce!

    It's technically not sperm, as the woman has no... sperm, but it is very similar in composition to sperm-less ejaculatory fluid. (What do you know, sex education pays off).
